Samsung Galaxy M55 5G Review: Respectable Mid-Ranger

Review of Samsung Galaxy M55 5G Review

Samsung has a set to capture the relative mid-budget segment market with M-series. The Samsung Galaxy M55 stands as a testament to Samsung’s commitment to innovation and meeting the demands of its diverse consumer base. Positioned within the mid-range segment, the Galaxy M55 boasts a fusion of performance, style, and affordability.

BUILD & DESIGN

Samsung has chosen a sleek and modern design language for the Galaxy M55, featuring clean lines and a minimalistic approach. The device has a slim profile with gently curved edges, providing a comfortable grip and a premium feel in hand. It is made of a combination of glass and plastic, making it lightweight yet durable. The camera module is seamlessly integrated into the rear panel, maintaining the samsung aesthetics. Despite being a mid-range phone, Samsung has maintained its reputation for delivering phones with solid build quality. The slim profile and curved edges enhance grip, reducing the likelihood of accidental slips. The Galaxy M55 feels sturdy and well-constructed, with no creaks or flexing observed during handling. The materials used offer a good balance between aesthetics and durability, ensuring that the phone can withstand daily use.

The placement of physical buttons are easy to reach. The size and weight of the phone are well-balanced, making it suitable for extended periods of use without causing hand fatigue. Whether browsing the web, streaming media, or engaging in productivity tasks, the Galaxy M55 offers a pleasant ergonomic experience. The slim bezels and notch design maximize screen real estate while maintaining a modern aesthetic. Additionally, features such as an on-screen fingerprint sensor and facial recognition further streamline the user experience, offering convenient and secure authentication methods.

PERFORMANCE

The Galaxy M55 is a mid-range smartphone positioned to offer a balance between performance, features, and affordability. It features a sleek and modern design with a sturdy build quality. Its ergonomic design makes it comfortable to hold and use.

The device boasts a vibrant and immersive display, with a 6.7-inch SuperAMOLED+ and 1080×2400 pixels capable of running up to 120Hz. Colours are vivid, and viewing angles are excellent, making it suitable for multimedia consumption and gaming. Overall, Samsung didn’t compromise on visual quality and offered the best display for a mid-range smartphone.

Surprisingly, the Galaxy M55 packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chipset instead of its in-house silicon Exynos. It also comes with a maximum of 12GB RAM; the Galaxy M55 delivers smooth and responsive performance in day-to-day tasks such as web browsing, social media, and productivity apps. Multitasking is handled well, with no minimal lag or slowdowns. Running on Samsung’s One UI 6.1, the Galaxy M55 offers a user-friendly interface with many features and customization options. Like other similar mid-range devices, even Galaxy M55 shipped with multiple unwanted pre-installed apps.

The gaming experience on a Galaxy M55 is decent, thanks to the Adreno 644 GPU graphics processor. When playing casual games, the device can maintain high frame rates without overheating. However, when it comes to more demanding titles like BGMI and Call of Duty, the performance is average, with an occasional dip in frame rates.

The Galaxy M55 is a smartphone with impressive battery life. It comes equipped with a powerful 5000 mAh battery, lasting more than a day even with moderate usage on a single charge. I recently tested the phone’s battery life by watching an entire 2-hour 4K movie, and I was pleasantly surprised to observe that the phone only drained 30% of its battery. Considering the power-hungry nature of 4K videos and the movie’s length, this is an excellent result. 

CAMERA

The Samsung Galaxy M55 features a triple-camera system on the back, led by a 50-megapixel primary sensor with optical image stabilization (OIS). In daylight, the 50-megapixel primary sensor captures good detail and acceptable colour accuracy, producing sharp and vivid photos well-suited for sharing on social media or taking casual snapshots. The OIS also helps in taking steady images. However, the M55 struggles in low-light conditions, as photos can appear noisy with noticeable grain, and details get lost in darker areas.

The 8-megapixel ultrawide sensor provides a broader perspective for capturing landscapes or group photos in tight spaces. It performs well in well-lit environments but expects some drop in quality compared to the primary sensor.

After taking many photos, I noticed that the camera software over-processes photos, leading to slightly unnatural-looking colours. While this is pleasing to the eye for casual users, photography enthusiasts prefer more control over the final image.

This device also has a 2-megapixel macro sensor, which is quite common in its price range. While it can capture decent close-up shots, it may not deliver exceptional detail, given its limited resolution. Nonetheless, the macro sensor can be useful for day-to-day photography, especially if you’re looking to capture images of small objects or details up close.

If you like taking selfies, you will be pleased to know that the device features a top-of-the-line 50-megapixel front-facing camera. This camera takes sharp, high-resolution photos, making it an excellent choice for video calls or close-up portraits.

VERDICT

The Galaxy M55 is an all-around phone that focuses on providing the essentials. If you prefer a reputable brand with stunning display, extended battery life, efficient performance, and software support at a reasonable price, the M55 is an excellent option. However, if you prioritize having the best camera in this price range, there are other alternatives available.
